India obviously are eager for a surface that should aid spin.

"Our pitch is one of the most hard ones for the batsmen [when facing fast bowlers] in Ranji Trophy, and its nature won't be altered". It is obvious that such pitches can be there only in wonderlands.

David Warner has been poor throughout the series but is the kind of player who can never be discounted. Former Australian quick Mitchell Johnson feels Indian will be nervous in the pace-friendly conditions.

"I know Virat Kohli and I don't think he's doing anything we wouldn't do as Australians, and we play the game as hard as anyone in the world".

"I think Ajinkya Rahane would probably step up to captain their side. So the more pressure we can put on the better", said Hazlewood, who has claimed 117 wickets from 29 Test matches in his budding career.

After the loss in Pune, the Indian team shelved its successful five-bowler strategy for an extra batsman. I think those two guys batted really well and credit goes to them for saving the Test match. But that's the game. "He s one of the best players going around, but you ve got to behave as a captain better than that", Lawson added.

Virat Kohli has rarely seen eye to eye with Smith on any issue in what has been a fractious series and the India captain predictably differed on the matter of momentum. "They (Australia) will be pumped after that. So, I'm confident, he'll be able to do a good job for them". Because they have collapsed a lot in the past. While Rahul got boundaries at will, Vijay paced his innings well, using the sweep to great effect.

"Physio wants to give it a bit more time till I can test myself, and probably we will take a call later tonight or tomorrow before the game", he told reporters on Friday. Of course, they have pushed us to coming back in the series. While India really should not be risking their captain, considering the importance of this match, it is hard to envisage Kohli not making it in the playing XI.

The current series has seen him facing some outrageous comments and allegations especially from the Australian media, but the Indian captain shrugged them off with certain nonchalance and said he holds no regrets. Talking about Matt Renshaw, the paceman appeared mighty impressed with the young opener. The only thing - I am surprised so many people are getting affected by just one individual, so good luck to them. He's different but he's a lovely kid. He says some odd things, he comes up with some unusual theories. "I think we can win".

"We all know that this is one of the toughest places to come to play as an Australian team", he said.

The final test begins in three days.

"A bit of sledging keeps happening from behind, so that also keeps playing into your mind".

"I saw that two times happening when I was batting".
